Cashmere Black 2017

Moor-ved-ruh sounds pretty French for a Spanish grape. Bien sur; it's Spanish! But there it's known as Monastrell. When you're in California or Australia they'll make a fuss over something called Mataro; that's right, it's the very same. Or is it? Mourvedre's spiritual home might have migrated north to France however. Bandol yields captivating vatietal Mourvedre that makes you wish all the world could entice the floral, earthen fruit that shows up willingly in their wines -although Cline's Ancient Vine and Small Berry are among the Americans with the closest resemblance. A side by side tasting left me dumbstruck. Along the Rhone, Mourvedre exercises a grise eminence that quietly lends its nuance and depth to the great Chateauneuf-du-Papes and the other southern Rhone blends. Further south along the sea rests Collioure where Mourvedre enchants the local Syrah and Grenache into wonderfully deep reds. The fortunate few to land their hands on Mourvedre are hooked for life.
